John Wesley once famously said, “There is no holiness apart from social holiness.” Over the years, many have mistakenly asserted that he was talking about social justice.
In reality, he was talking about doing discipleship in the context of real relationships. In essence, you can’t become a real Christian alone. The way forward is as close as a few other people who are willing to band together.
We’re not talking about a traditional small group or a typical accountability group. The primary curriculum is the lives of the bandmates, joined together in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

Group prayer adapted from Ephesians 5:14 and 3:14-19.
1. How is it with your soul?
2. What are your struggles and successes?
3. How might the Spirit and Scriptures be speaking in your life?
4. Do you have any sin that you want to confess?
5. Are there any secrets or hidden things you would like to share?

The Discipleship Bands app facilitates deep, meaningful band relationships in two ways. First, it delivers discipleship content to you every day, and, second, it brings your band together into a private online group to interact around that content. It’s that simple.
Jump in with your existing band, a set of old friends, or new friends drawn together by a desire for deeper discipleship.
You never know when you’ll receive a word from the Lord for a bandmate or when you’ll need support and encouragement.
Daily notifications come each morning, so you won’t forget a reading.
When truth enters into our togetherness through the five questions, it produces transformation.
